North Yorkshire Moors Railway. No.1


First visit to the North Yorkshire Railway this summer, was good for me and my dad. Although we saw only two locos, both were Southern and both new to both of us, particularly the ‘Schools’. The locos were ‘Schools’ Class No.30926 Repton and S15 825. All shots were around Grosmont.

North Norfolk Railway Poppy Line 1940 Weekend Sheringham Bygone Memories Romance and Steam Trains


Related link www.ambermodels.co.uk North Norfolk Railway staged a remarkable 1940’s re-enactment along the famous Poppy Line Strip in Sheringham. The nostalgic steam train journey incorporated Weybourne and Holt complete with steam trains and memorable music supplied by the many musicians and acts that attended. Many visitors wore clothes from the period including army uniform and makeshift wartime fashions. Managing director, Trevor Eady was delighted with the response and said that the weekend gala was growing in size every year “There is certainly an increase in people making the effort to turn up in wartime costume” said Mister Eady “I forecast more people doing so next year” The whole atmosphere of the event bought back a lot of memories for many in an era of brief romantic ecconters, hardship and bygone memories.

Nickel Plate Road #765 Steam Excursion: North Judson to La Crosse, Indiana, 30.05.11


Nickel Plate Road (New York, Chicago & St Louis) Class S-2 Berkshire-type 2-8-4 #765 ran several trips throughout Memorial Day, and is scheduled to do so again a few more times this summer. It is running from North Judson to a point just south of La Crosse, Indiana, and back, several times a day, over the tracks of shortline Chesapeake & Indiana Railroad (CKIN), which operates freight service here with their ex-EJ&E and DM&IR SD9s, up to the CN and CSX connections at Wellsboro. The “J” unit was used to bring the train back to North Judson; it was not powering the train when 765 was leading. The tracks here are a former C&O branch- North Judson was once a massive junction where C&O, the Nickel Plate, Pennsy and Erie all crossed each other. Everything else is now abandoned except for this line. First, the 1944-built locomotive is seen crossing County Road South 650 West in the miniscule hamlet of English Lake. Later, Chesapeake & Indiana’s former Elgin, Joliet & Eastern SD9 #818 leads the train south toward North Judson, with #765 pushing on the rear, crossing Toto Road. I followed the train south to the intersection of W 500 S, S 450 W, & English Lake Rd, where EJ&E 818 looks for all the world like an Alco, until it becomes evident that 765 is pushing on the rear, blowing black smoke! Later, the train has arrived at C&I’s small yard at North Judson, and the Hoosier Valley Railroad Musem there, located on the former C&O/NKP/PRR/Erie junction site. Grasselli Tower, until
